EDM 182 Truck

Lately I seem to be fascinated by old rusty metal. This EDM truck challenge brought me back to the subject when I found this picture of an old, rusty abandoned vehicle. The picture made a bold color statement and I did not quite capture it - I may go back in with some really bold/ sweeping, strong strokes - - - I will need a drink first ;-) A few months ago I did this old truck sketch from a magazine photo. I really like rust and blue combos.

Beautifully painted rusty truck. I like the mix of rusts and blues too.

Oh I love your trucks! Wouldn't it be fun to have one of these to drive, well, if you had a good stereo and gas was cheaper? LOL!
